Just be careful when you torque them not to break them.

Actually I just noticed from your pic that your ding is exactly like my ding on my MCR220. It came shipped like that. I thought it was damaged too but its fine. Did you do that yourself or did arrive like that? Would be interesting if a batch got through that had been dinged in the same place somehow.

Yea like 3.0Charlie said but i feel safer with the Metal barbs specially when it comes to cutting the tubing off later on when you decide to change yer loop its a lot easier taking a razer and cutting gently on the metal barbs. Price Match it on TD Direct i guess its about piece of mind but its up to yea.

Is that why I couldn't price compare with them a few days ago..

Seriously though I noticed when I was trying to pricematch this week that there seemed to be fewer valid options than at other times.

lol... sorry I just had too..... first time using the multy quote button..... LOL....


I need help figuring out how to fill the system. I would love to add a T some where in the loop but there isnt the room. Anybody have a suggestion? I dont think i have room on between the top of the case and the fillport on the res to use it.....
